(Inthe dream) I saw myself prostrating in mud and water in the morning of that night. So, look for it inthe last ten nights and in the odd ones of them." It rained that night and the roof of the mosquedribbled as it was made of leaf stalks of date-palms.

SAHIH BUKHARI VOLUME 3 > BOOK 33: RETIRING TO A MOSQUE FOR REMEMBRANCE OF ALLAH (ITIKAF) (the wife of the Prophet) Allahs Apostle used to let his head in (the house) while he was in themosque and I would comb and oil his hair. When in Itikaf he used not to enter the house except for aneed.Volume 3, Book 33, Number 247: Narrated Aisha: The Prophet used to embrace me during my menses.

The Prophet said to him, "Fulfill your vow."Volume 3, Book 33, Number 249: Narrated Amra: Aisha said, "the Prophet used to practice Itikaf in the last ten days of Ramadan and I used to pitch atent for him, and after offering the morning prayer, he used to enter the tent." Hafsa asked the per-mission of Aisha to pitch a tent for her and she allowed her and she pitched her tent. When Zainabbint Jahsh saw it, she pitched another tent. In the morning the Prophet noticed the tents. He said,What is this?" He was told of the whole situation. Then the Prophet said, "Do you think that they in-tended to do righteousness by doing this?" He therefore abandoned the Itikaf in that month andpracticed Itikaf for ten days in the month of Shawwal."Volume 3, Book 33, Number 250: Narrated Aisha: The Prophet intended to practice Itikaf and when he reached the place where he intended to per-form Itikaf, he saw some tents, the tents of Aisha, Hafsa and Zainab. So, he said, "Do you considerthat they intended to do righteousness by doing this?" And then he went away and did not performItikaf (in Ramadan) but performed it in the month of Shawwal for ten days.Volume 3, Book 33, Number 251: Narrated Ali bin Al-Husain: Volume 3 - 461 / 1700
  3. 3. SAHIH BUKHARI VOLUME 3 > BOOK 33: RETIRING TO A MOSQUE FOR REMEMBRANCE OF ALLAH (ITIKAF) Safiya, the wife of the Prophet told me that she went to Allahs Apostle to visit him in the mosquewhile he was in Itikaf in the last ten days of Ramadan. She had a talk with him for a while, then shegot up in order to return home. The Prophet accompanied her. When they reached the gate of themosque, opposite the door of Um-Salama, two Ansari men were passing by and they greeted AllahsApostle . He told them: Do not run away! And said, "She is (my wife) Safiya bint Huyai." Both of themsaid, "Subhan Allah, (How dare we think of any evil) O Allahs Apostle!" And they felt it. The Prophetsaid (to them), "Satan reaches everywhere in the human body as blood reaches in it, (everywhere inones body). I was afraid lest Satan might insert an evil thought in your minds."Volume 3, Book 33, Number 252: Narrated Abu Salama bin Abdur-Rahman: I asked Abu Said Al-Khudri, "Did you hear Allahs Apostle talking about the Night of Qadr?" Hereplied in the affirmative and said, "Once we were in Itikaf with Allahs Apostle in the middle tendays of (Ramadan) and we came out of it in the morning of the twentieth, and Allahs Apostle- de-livered a sermon on the 20th (of Ramadan) and said, I was informed (of the date) of the Night ofQadr (in my dream) but had forgotten it. So, look for it in the odd nights of the last ten nights of themonth of Ramadan. I saw myself prostrating in mud and water on that night (as a sign of the Nightof Qadr). So, whoever had been in Itikaf with Allahs Apostle should return for it. The people re-turned to the mosque (for Itikaf). There was no trace of clouds in the sky. But all of a sudden a cloudcame and it rained. Then the prayer was established (they stood for the prayer) and Allahs Apostleprostrated in mud and water and I saw mud over the forehead and the nose of the Prophet.Volume 3, Book 33, Number 253: Narrated Aisha: One of the wives of Allahs Apostle practiced Itikaf with him while she ad bleeding in between herperiods and she would see red (blood) or yellowish traces, and sometimes we put a tray beneath herwhen she offered the prayer.Volume 3, Book 33, Number 254: Narrated Ali bin Al-Husain (from Safiya, the Prophets wife): The wives of the Prophet were with him in the mosque (while he was in Itikaf) and then they de-parted and the Prophet said to Safiya bint Huyai, "Dont hurry up, for I shall accompany you," (andher dwelling was in the house of Usama). The Prophet went out and in the meantime two Ansarimen met him and they looked at the Prophet and passed by. The Prophet said to them, "Come here.She is (my wife) Safiya bint Huyai." They replied, "Subhan Allah, (How dare we think of evil) O Al-lahs Apostle! (we never expect anything bad from you)." The Prophet replied, "Satan circulates in the Volume 3 - 462 / 1700

SAHIH BUKHARI VOLUME 3 > BOOK 33: RETIRING TO A MOSQUE FOR REMEMBRANCE OF ALLAH (ITIKAF)human being as blood circulates in the body, and I was afraid lest Satan might insert an evil thoughtin your minds."Volume 3, Book 33, Number 255: Narrated Ali bin Al-Husain from Safiya: Safiya went to the Prophet while he was in Itikaf. When she returned, the Prophet accompaniedher walking. An Ansari man saw him. When the Prophet noticed him, he called him and said, "Comehere. She is Safiya. (Sufyan a sub-narrator perhaps said that the Prophet had said, "This is Safiya").And Satan circulates in the body of Adams offspring as his blood circulates in it." (A sub-narrator asked Sufyan, "Did Safiya visit him at night?" He said, "Of course, at night.")Volume 3, Book 33, Number 256: Narrated Abu Said: We practiced Itikaf with Allahs Apostle in the middle ten days (of Ramadan). In the morning ofthe twentieth (of Ramadan) we shifted our baggage, but Allahs Apostle came to us and said, "Who-ever was m Itikaf should return to his place of Itikaf, for I saw (i.e. was informed about the date of)this Night (of Qadr) and saw myself prostrating in mud and water." When I returned to my place thesky was overcast with clouds and it rained. By Him Who sent Muhammad with the Truth, the skywas covered with clouds from the end of that day, and the mosque which was roofed with leaf-stalksof date palm trees (leaked with rain) and I saw the trace of mud and water over the nose of theProphet and its tip.Volume 3, Book 33, Number 257: Narrated Amra bint Abdur-Rahman from Aisha: Allahs Apostle used to practice Itikaf every year in the month of Ramadan. And after offering themorning prayer, he used to enter the place of his Itikaf. Aisha asked his permission to let her practiceItikaf and he allowed her, and so she pitched a tent in the mosque. When Hafsa heard of that, shealso pitched a tent (for herself), and when Zainab heard of that, she too pitched another tent. When,in the morning, Allahs Apostle had finished the morning prayer, he saw four tents and asked, "Whatis this?" He was informed about it. He then said, "What made them do this? Is it righteousness? Re-move the tents, for I do not want to see them." So, the tents were removed. The Prophet did not per-form Itikaf that year in the month of Ramadan, but did it in the last ten days of Shawwal.Volume 3, Book 33, Number 258: Narrated Abdullah bin Umar: Volume 3 - 463 / 1700

So, he performed Itikaffor one night.Volume 3, Book 33, Number 259: Narrated Ibn Umar: that Umar had vowed in the Pre-lslamic period to perform Itikaf in Al-Masjid-al-Haram.
